    That's nice to hear. I actually came across a FB group for the Primeweld, and the creator posted an email about more coming in.

    Thanks George
    Its a damn shame that I'm a newb and certainly not qualified to report if its doing everything that it should.
    My goal was to get a dedicated ac/dc Tig to learn on and pedal the miller 215 that only does lift arc DC Tig and just buy a less costly mig.
    Heres me wishing i knew someone to put it through all the paces to tell me if its right or not
    i feel pretty confident that the only errors will be user caused

    Hi George,

    I know this is an older thread, but it's relevant as I'm searching for a new welder. This one intrigues me and it seems like there's great support. Not a fan of the foot pedal tho. Would a SSC or Nova pedal work on this unit?

    Thanks in advance,
    Rick

    Re: Primeweld AC/DC Tig 225X

    I hear this all the time about the foot pedal, but I have been using that type foot pedal for 6 years and it has never failed. If you want a different foot pedal that would be up to you to spend the extra money. An SSC or Nova pedal is really not an upgrade its just a different type of pedal.

    Re: Primeweld AC/DC Tig 225X

    I've got one of these units for doing occasional AC and frequent DC. Mine died the second time I used it, but their guy Mike was on top of it. Called me up on a Sunday evening to check in, which I think is awesome. The replacement is running good. I might replace the foot pedal, but that's my only gripe. I like that people are still making stuff with KNOBS. You can't crank it up to 11 if there's nothing to crank on.

    Great! I appreciate that! You, Mike and Dustin are the reason I went with Primeweld over the Green or Yellow options! People buy from PEOPLE! That old adage has been lost on too many big companies these days and it is refreshing to be able to actually reach out to a "person" as opposed to an anonymous "help desk"!

    So far, i love mine other than the pedal. Looking at the HF vulcan pedal or the nova pedal. from what i understand the nova is a 1 to 1 knockoff of the SSC and the vulcan has the same
    part number on it as the SSC indicating that it may be an SSC and rebranded for HF.

    Re: Primeweld AC/DC Tig 225X

    Well, i went to harbor freight today to look at that vulcan pedal.
    Im thinking that its not an SSC made pedal.
    I think the geometry is weird and it feels like crap.
    Even worse than the pedal that came with the Primeweld.
    It seems loose and jerky through the movement like its just not smooth at all.
    I'll pass on it and get an SSC or the Nova knockoff.

    Last week i called and spoke with Mike at Primeweld and then phoned George, both where extremely helpful and removed any remaining hesitations i had. I ordered the Primeweld "TIG225ACDCP" yesterday.

    Just received mine today! I guess they come with a finger switch for the TIG now as well as the pedal! Now I just need to clean all the crap out of my shop before I can plug it in!

    Yes it comes with a trigger switch as well as a pedal. You will need the trigger to use the 4t function or the 2t for tacking or were you can't get at the foot pedal.

    Re: Primeweld AC/DC Tig 225X

    I checked out the Harbor Freight pedal as well. Being that I had a HF store credit to burn I figured that I would give it a go. With the %20 off any Vulcan accessory and additional $5.00 off coupons I picked it up for $51.00. Another reason for my HF purchase was pedal compatibility. The pedal that ships with the PrimeWeld has a resistance of 10K (Ohms) and the HF Vulcan is a 10K pedal as well so there is no potentiometer swapping involved with the conversion. I had a spare compatible 7 Pin connector so after a bit of wire tracing and soldering I was good to go . (I have the pin-outs if anyone would like them). Anyway the HF pedal is working out just fine for me. Now I am not claiming that HF is the worlds finest TIG pedal but it's pretty damn good one for $51.00.
